Before you begin
Ensure that you have created a machine and that you have installed and configured Node Manager on each physical machine that contains a WebLogic Server instance. For more information on creating a machine, see Create and configure machines. For information on installing and configuring Node Manager, see Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.
Node Manager is program that is used to control WebLogic Server instances. A single Node Manager instance is used to control all of the server instances running on the same physical machine. These instances can reside in different clusters, domains, and such. You must configure each machine in your domain to communicate with Node Manager.
For general information on Node Manager, see Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.
For more information on Node Manager types, see Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.
Note: The values you provide here must correspond to the values you used to configured the Node Manager instance.
Note: The Node Manager Listen Address value reflects client-side configuration. It tells the Administration Server or clients on the Administration Server how to connect to Node Manager. This attribute does not configure Node Manager.
If you identify the Listen Address by IP address, you must disable Host Name Verification on Administration Servers that will access Node Manager. For more information and instructions, see Using Host Name Verification in Administering Security for Oracle WebLogic Server.
For more information on configuring Node Manager using SSH or RSH, see Administering Node Manager for Oracle WebLogic Server.
